This very scenic course was built on hilly terrain, so there will be a lot of uneven lies. The fairways are generous in width, and completely tree lined. Water hazards come into play on six holes, and there are sand bunkers on nearly every hole. The greens are medium-sized, undulating and fairly fast. The signature hole is #17, a 215-yard, par 3, which provides a scenic view from the tee of two states and three counties. From the tee to the green there is a 110-foot drop in elevation. In the background is a nice view of Bass Lake, and the green is in the shape of the lake. "Golf Digest" selected this course 3rd on its list of "Best New Upscale Public Courses" for 1998.

|This course is easily the best course I have played. It's on a par with Blackwolf Run and the other Kohler courses at a fraction of the price. This course has a spectacular setting. It winds up and around Iron Mountain, and is a marvel of course design. Despite the elevation changes, only one hole plays uphill. The holes are cut out of the mountain side and winding cart paths take you to the next level, and hole, until you reach numbers 9 and 17, both of which play straight downhill (as does 18, a 600 yard par five with 3 terraced fairways). The grooming is immaculate and each hole is separated from the others by woods or water. Even on a busy day it feels like you're the only golfers on the course. The staff is friendly and efficient and the course is nicely rangered. As you play the course, you will marvel both at the quality of the experience and the incredible engineering required during construction. Rates have been in the $50-60 range for the past several years and its the best golf bargain you can find. This is a course you could play every day and it would remain interesting. The fairways and greens compare with any PGA site. This is one not to miss.|
